GREENPEACE USE BULL TO DENOUNCE POLLUTION

One of Spain's famous roadside bulls became a vehicle for the environmental group Greenpeace yesterday, when the group painted a mask on the Osborne brandy bull's face to protect it from traffic fumes, as well as a "Stop C02" sign.
According to the group, the action was part of a campaign being carried out throughout the continent ahead of a vote in the European Parliament on limits of carbon dioxide emissions for new cars sold in Europe. Greenpeace has also published a manual to "demonstrate" to Spanish politicians that the automobile industry "has no excuses" for not reducing emissions.
